    First off, I'm using the following versions.
    WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.11.0-R16709
    Theme: X3

    I have repeatedly tried to extract a zip file in the public_html folder using the extract function in FileManager (right-click -> extract and also left-click -> extract button).

    After confirmation of the extraction path, (/public_html) I get a message:

    Code:
    Archive:  /home/mysite/public_html/e107_079_cvs.zip
    replace online.php? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename:  NULL
    (assuming [N]one)
    And the extraction ceases.

    It seems that there is no way to actually input a preference so that it overwrites existing files. There is no pausing for input. NULL appears at the same time as everything else.

    Am I missing something, or is this actually a bug?

    Thanks

    Just a guess, but it might be so you don't inadvertently overwrite something you don't want to lose? Unpack to a directory and copy the files over via FTP, that'll overwrite the files.

    The old X theme used to overwrite without a problem, so I doubt it's that, particularly since a prompt is given (Yes, No, All etc), even if it is useless.
